Interview - Indian Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao:
Indian missions abroad are adopting social media: What prompted this?
Well! We have obviously watched the impact that social media has had in the recent developments in the Arab world. You can see the emergence of a powerful new phenomenon and it is important that we remain engaged in this space.
Keeping this in mind, we have asked our missions to establish a presence on Facebook or other similar social media platforms wherever this is permitted under local laws. We expect that over the next few months, this will help us build communities of persons who have an interest in India and with whom we can build an active, two-way engagement. We also hope to employ social media to tell the India story in a more effective manner.
